Summary, preferred option and implementation plan

  1. The Government is implementing a new framework for local TV. It wants to remove unnecessary burdens and restrictions relating to independent producers and local TV. This will help to ensure the long-term success and sustainability of local TV.

  1. The preferred option is to remove both restrictions, so that:

  • the 10% content quota will be removed from local TV services – which would mean the local content broadcasters would not be required to source at least 10% of their content from independent producers.

  1. The Government now intends to consult on the above proposals and this consultation-stage impact assessment will form part of that consultation. This will enable stakeholders to contribute views and consider any impacts – intended or otherwise – from the changes suggested above.
